And it couldn't turn more ironic.
Coín, a town in the province of Malaga, southeast Spain is using a local currency to boost the economy. Apparently, citizens are happy with the results.
The currency, called "the Coin", named after the issuing town, allows exchanging goods and services produced within the town. A person can at most hold 200 Coins.
I want to see the faces of the ones that laugh at local currencies when their beloved central bank-backed pieces of paper get inflated to aleph null.
Watch your back Draghi!
